But in the act of unwavering loyalty and love, Major remained with Mr. McKoy for the entire time they waited for the emergency services to arrive.
Mr McKoy unfortunately died while Major suffered a dislocated and broken leg, but he has since been shot down.
Mr. McKoy's sister, Jasmine Nadin, has since spoken out to pay tribute to her brother.
& # 39; He has taught me so much in life and I have always looked up to him & # 39 ;, she told The Courier Mail.
She also spoke about the band that Major and Mr. McKoy shared.

Mrs. Nadin said it was a & # 39; miracle & # 39; used to be. Major had even survived the accident in the beginning.
She sadly said that his injuries were so serious that he could not be saved and was later euthanized.
At the time of the crash, the police felt McKoy had been too fast.
Mr. McKoy is one of six motorists killed on the roads of Queensland between Monday and Friday.
& # 39; Last weekend was incredibly tragic with some serious crashes in the state, some of which have claimed innocent lives, & # 39; said Acting Chief Inspector Neal White.
Acting Chief Inspector White spoke of the & # 39; huge impact & # 39; of such tragic accidents to families, the wider services and social workers.
